The Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education (PEJE) believes that day schools are essential for fostering an engaged Jewish people for an enduring future.
With over twelve years of experience and expertise leading the diverse day school field, we focus on three critical levers: professional leadership, board governance, and financial sustainability. Our strategic initiatives in these areas take place at the local, regional, and national levels.
PEJE's work with major stakeholders in the Jewish community extends across denominations to leaders from day schools, day school networks, federations, foundations, and central educational agencies. We use knowledge, research, and advocacy to advance interest in and support of day school as an exemplary and affordable educational option.
By catalyzing Jewish day schools to become the pinnacle of inspired, inspiring, and sought-after education, we ensure lasting connections to Jewish heritage and the Jewish people.
The work of PEJE across North America is made possible by the support of a partnership of visionary philanthropists and foundations.
